June

Armenia

June to October are the best months for visiting Georgia.  It can get fairly hot in Yerevan (especially in July and August when temperatures can pass 30 degrees Celsius), although the mountain areas will be relatively cooler, with Spring-like conditions for most of the time (although temperatures can drop below zero at the altitudes of more than 3,000 metres even during this period). 

Bhutan

The summer in Bhutan lasts from June to August.  This more or less coincides with the rainy season, which although not as severe in the highlands (where you are more likely to visit) as in the tropical south of the country, can lead to roads being sometimes blocked due to landslides.  June is therefore not the ideal time to visit Bhutan.  Spring (March to May) and autumn (September and November) are better.  

Botswana

June, July and August are the winter months, marked by cloudless days and mild temperatures, with average temperatures ranging from 7-27 degrees Celsius. The landscapes outside the Okavango Delta begin their drying process, gradually fading from lush green to dry khaki colours. In the Delta, the floodwaters from Angola start to fill the countless lagoons and streams.  Gameviewing is at its best.

Burma (Myanmar)

We do not recommend visiting Burma from April to September, when the temperatures are very high (reaching up towards 40 degrees Celsius in April); the rainy season begins in May and lasts throughout the summer months.

Cambodia

A tropical country, Cambodia is warm all year round.  June to September is the rainy season, although the rain usually falls in short heavy showers in the afternoon rather than all day.  Humidity is high.  We do not recommend travelling to the northeastern Rattanakiri region during these months as the roads are often unpassable.

China Holidays - Temple of Heaven, Beijing

 

China

Spring and Autumn are the best months to visit China in terms of the weather. Days should be warm and sunny with only occasional rain.  This is, however, the peak season and some of the more popular tourist sites (the Great Wall or the Terracotta Warriors, for example) can be very crowded.

 

Egypt

Egypt is at its hottest from May to August.  With the relative lack of humidity, however, and sightseeing arranged for the early morning and late afternoon, it can still be very enjoyable, especially as the sites are less crowded.  Hotel prices are lower at this time of the year.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

Georgia

June to September are the best months for visiting Georgia.  It can get fairly hot in Tbilisi (especially in July where temperatures can pass 30 degrees Celsius), although the mountain areas will be relatively cooler, with Spring-like conditions for most of the time (although temperatures can drop below zero at the altitudes of more than 3,000 metres even during this period). 

Iceland

June is a good time to visit Iceland, just before the very busy peak months of July and August.  Outside Reykjavík most of the hotels and guesthouses have now opened and the daylight hours are long - the sun never really sets during the second half of the month.

India

North: June is the hottest time of the year, with temperatures regularly passing 40 degrees Celsius, so most people would prefer to travel at another time - best months are October to March.  Himalayas - a lovely time to head for the hills, with clear and warm conditions.  It is also the perfect time to visit KashmirSouth: May to September is the principal rainy season in Kerala (although due to the region's tropical climate rain is a possibility at any time of the year).  Travel is not ideal in the summer months, but there are fewer crowds and prices are significantly lower.

Iran

Summer is hot in Iran, with temperatures sometimes reaching as high as 38 degrees Celsius.  The lack of humidity, however, makes the heat tolerable and many passengers choose to travel at this time of the year.  For those who prefer milder temperatures, April/May and September/October are better times for travelling in Iran.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

Jordan

June is a good time of the year to visit Jordan and the Holy Land.  Days should be hot and sunny, but the lack of humidity makes the heat more bearable.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

Kenya

Kenya straddles the Equator and is sunny and hot for most of the year.  From late March, through April and May, and into June, Kenya experiences the 'Long Rains'.  Although it doesn't rain incessantly, it isn't the best time to visit Kenya and we do not recommend that you travel during this period.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 (mainly observed in the coastal areas) is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

 

 Lebanon Holidays - Baalbeck

Lebanon

Lebanon has a Mediterranean climate, with variations because of the mountainous interior.  From May to August it is hot and humid on the coast, with little or no rain and temperatures reaching 38 Celsius (although it is much cooler at night).  In the mountains it is generally fresh and sunny during the day.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

 

Morocco

The hot summer months (June, July and August) are good for visiting the north and the mountain areas, but in the far south, particularly beyond the Atlas Mountains on the edge of the Sahara, the heat can be intense.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

Namibia

Namibia is located in the tropics and is an all-year-round destination which is mostly rain-free. From June to September (winter) it is pleasantly warm during the day, but noticeably cooler at night.  This is a great time for wildlife viewing in Etosha as the longer grass has been grazed, making it much easier to spot the animals on the open plains.

Nepal

June to August is the period of the summer monsoon.  Although it doesn't rain all the time, visibility is poor because of the cloud cover, so there are no spectacular mountain views to be had.  On the plus side, prices are much lower than during the rest of the year, and it's one of the best times for visiting neighbouring Tibet using Kathmandu as the gateway.

Peru

On the coast it's warm and dry throughout the year (with Lima the exception, often covered by a low cloud known as the garua).  In the highlands, from May to September is the best time to visit, with relatively little rain and generally clear blue skies.  It's also the best time for the Amazon jungle, although it can rain throughout the year and is generally hot and humid.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka's temperature varies little throughout the year, with maximum day-time temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius, with the minimum usually above 20 degrees.  It is generally slightly cooler in the hills.  From May to August there is a summer rainy season but seldom are the rains monsoon-style for the whole day.

Syria

Summer is hot in Syria with temperatures in the daytime reaching as high as 40 degrees Celsius.  June is therefore only for travellers who can put up with the extreme heat.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

Tanzania

Generally speaking the highlands (where the gameviewing takes place) enjoy a temperate climate, whilst the coast is hot and humid year round.  By early June the heavy Spring rains should have ended, so this is a good time to visit.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 (mainly observed in the coast areas and on the island of Zanzibar) is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

Thailand

June is hot and humid in most of Thailand, with frequent rain.

Tibet

June is a good time to visit Tibet, with warm daytime temperatures (around 15 degrees Celsius) and dry conditions.

Uzbekistan Holidays - Bukhara

  

Uzbekistan

May, June and September are the best months to go to Uzbekistan.  Days should be sunny, dry and warm.  Please note that the feast of Ramadan in 2015 is from 18 June to 17 July; Muslims abstain from food, drink and smoking during daylight hours, and many local restaurants and cafes will be closed during the day.

 

  

  

  

Vietnam

There is no ideal time to visit Vietnam as there are distinct regional variations between the Northern, Central and Southern regions.  June is one of the hottest times of the year, with rain always a possibility in the south of the country.

Zambia

The dry season in Zambia runs from May to November.  This is the best time to visit, with mainly clear blue skies and hardly any rain.  It's naturally therefore the most popular time to visit (especially August to October) so prices are higher and accommodation should be booked well in advance.
